Okay, this has become a rather dramatic intro in to the blog post, so let’s delve in to the 5 make up products I can’t live without.

max factor foundation
Product type – Foundation
ProductMax Factor Face Finity All Day Flawless Foundation

Foundation is the base of all bases and without it, I must admit - I do feel bare. Of course, I don’t feel the need to always wear it, especially at home or if I’m just popping out to run some errands, however, it is important to me because it makes me feel confident and good about myself. I love a full coverage foundation and usually use a brush and a blender to apply it.

Ahhh, those pesky dark circles/eye bags that just don’t seem to ever want to go away. What can we do? Simply hide them - and concealer is a something I use daily, not only to cover dark circles, but also to conceal blemishes. It’s definitely something I consider as a must and something I can’t live without due to the sheer fact that it can conceal and highlight - I do love a multi-purpose product.

Product type – Eyeliner and Eyebrows
Products (cheated a bit here, haa!) – Benefit Gimme Brow Eyebrow Gel and Bourjois Liner Pinceau Eyeliner

When they say ‘eyebrows shapes the whole face’ – they weren’t lying – it really does – that’s why to me, keeping my eyebrows intact and in good shape is very important to me. I get them threaded every 3 weeks and use a pencil to line the shape and fill it in with either a powder or a gel pomade. With eyeliner, I love it because it brightens the outline of my eyes and gives it a nice, finished look. I also feel extra glam when I wearing eyeliner which is always fab.

highlighter palette to try
Product type – Highlighter
Product - Gosh Strobe'N Glow Kit Highlight

Highlighter, has in recent years become a ‘must’ in my makeup routine and now I can’t imagine life without it. It’s one of those products that just completes all make-up looks just like icing on top of a cake, plus a cherry. My skin tone favours the light gold/champagne shades of highlighters, so I tend to use them the most. Although, I also quite like the pink-toned ones that look super subtle and pretty on my skin.

matte lipstick
Product type – Lipstick
ProductRimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lipstick

My favourite make-up product type has always been lipstick and I collect them like nobody’s business. I love a good nude shade and my lipsticks draws mainly consist of them with the odd few bright reds and dark burgundy’s floating about. Lipstick for me is the ultimate end to a perfect make up look and I would feel bare if I didn’t have any on.
